This is a community site, as such, people will help you with (small) issues voluntarily. No charge...

However, if you have major issues, you can hire someone to look at the problems in your network and analyze the capture files for you. I (amongst other people here) can help you with that. You can contact me by e-mail if you like. My e-mail address is in my user profile.

SYNbit nailed it.

No capture files necessary. A big flat network with 15 servers and 350 clients will crawl because of broadcast traffic alone. You need at least 1 layer 3 device and probably a few VLANs.
